The Acts and Resolves Passed by the General Assembly of the State of Vermont contain information on corporations formed by a special act of the legislature. Incorporations that relate to Rutland or Rutland County were extracted and compiled into this document by the Rutland Historical Society. In addition to businesses it includes groups such as cemetery associations and town-based organizations. Also added are a few items of general interest, not specifically Rutland, such as slavery and slave trade, Indian tribes, environmental acts, paintings in the State House, maple syrup, social issues, Liberia, land given to New York, and Gettysburg monuments. It is searchable as well. We are missing some volumes, so entries for missing years are not included in the document. The Rutland References information was extracted from the document Vermont Corporations edited and compiled by D. Gregory Sanford in 1987. Yellow highlighting indicates that there is an entry in this document. The initials RFC stands for Records of the Formation of Corporations, which can be found at the state archives. Those designated with RFC were formed through articles of association rather than a special act and are not found in the Acts & Resolves books.
